The accuracy of stereoscopic and standard three-dimensional (3D) CT in the classification of acetabular fractures was compared. A receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis was performed by two radiologists and two surgeons blinded to the presence of acetabular fractures in an animal model (a total of 62 porcine hips, 40 with artificial acetabular fractures). Classification of acetabular fractures was adopted from the literature. Interpretation was performed on a workstation using two
